Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

Addiction is painful. It's painful for the person going through it and it's painful for the people who are trying to help. Because addiction is so intense, it effects every single aspect of your life. Not all therapists have training in addiction and many are unsure of how to treat it. It's important that you go to a therapist who has adequate training and knows how to help. I have received numerous hours of training learning how to treat addiction both in a individual and family context. I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as well as Addiction-Focused therapies like the 12-Step Program. Take the first step to breaking this cycle and set up an appointment today.

I have worked wirh hundreds of substance abusers in the past, and I work with people who are abstinent and involved in a program such as AA or NA. Many times the substance abusers have an underlying psychiatric disorder and may be "self medicating" and I will make appropriate referrals for medication.All of the substance abusers that I have worked with have an underlying trauma or depression or unresolved grief.

While most treatment approaches to addiction include 12 step programs, rehabs, and now sober living houses, Grey Matters International, Inc. provides a wildly successful alternative to traditional models of addiction treatment----that keeps the brain in mind. That is, talking to the conscious brain while the primal brain is deciding things even before you are consciously aware? Well, that is the problem to solve in addiction. We have the solution utilizing a new cutting edge neuroscience-centered brain rebalancing system. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or call 877-606-6161.

Addiction Counselor

Mary Lynn Meyers, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Lake Zurich

Making the decision to tackle an addiction (substances, sex, gambling, food) is one of the most difficult decisions any of us ever makes. I can help you to examine how your thinking and behavioral patterns may undermine your success in breaking free from an addictive habit and assist you in establishing new, more adaptive ways to work through your addiction. Families who are struggling with an addict are not only critical to the addict's recovery, but most often are behaving in ways that support the addiction. It is important for everyone in a family system to work together to honestly reflect on their role and begin to develop new coping mechanisms to be successful.

There are many forms of addiction and I specialize in those that are considered a "Process Addiction" This is an addictions to an activity or process, such as gambling, eating, spending, sex, and work. Not to be confused with Substance Abuse Addictions. I do not treat people for substance abuse problems but will refer clients to others if that is the primary problem. Process addictions are compulsive behaviors that get in the way of peoples lives.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Alcohol/Drug Counselor

Although substance abuse issues are primarily recognized as addictions, I am aware of the many other forms of addiction, such as gambling, sex, and internet. My philosophy is that any form of addiciton is simply a way for the individual to cope with their stressors. I would encourage the use of positive coping techniques; I would not be judgmental in any way. I believe that seeking assistance is a show of strength.

I work with what is called process addictions including food, gambling, work, sexual, and relationship addictions. My hope is to help the person become healthy and understand the need that is leading to the addiction and constructive ways to meet those needs. Often it is about balance and learning limits and coping with those limits. The goal is to help the client move from addiction to freedom from addiction.

Addiction to any substance or behavior can have hugh consequences. Admitting that ones life is out of control is the first step to a successful recovery from any addiction. Learning new coping skills like mindfulness, emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness and distress tolerance will equip the client with life long skills that will allow them to live a more fulfilled life. Many times addicts are not running toward something they are running from something. Uncovering what that is might be another key to a solid recovery.

Addiction Counselor

Deb Norton, MS LCPC NCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Substance Addiction creates a lot of drama for people. And it comes with a good amount of denial. So it's critical that I meet my clients where they are. Teens and adults often process this territory differently so it's important that I've worked with both and understand their particular needs. Soon, we identify the consequences clients have suffered as a result of their drinking/drug use. And we talk about how their belief system changes their ability to see the truth about drugs and alcohol. Using psycho-educational strategies, I help clients make choices and begin to heal their addiction.

Release the chains of addiction that bind you! With counseling, we can help you find motivation in quitting your addiction, maintain sobriety and create new ways to enjoy life again. We treat all kinds of addictions: Alcohol, opiates (Oxycontin, vicodin, heroin, etc), gambling, internet sex, shopping and food. Not all additions require absolute abstinence. In the cases of non-opiate addictions, harm reduction therapy is our go to. Whereas Alcoholics Anonymous has ONLY 2% success rate, Harm Reduction Therapy takes a different approach - it recognizes that life time absence is impossible for 98% of people. Instead of banning everything, we reduce the harm done by those substances!

Additions can often be understood as an effort to numb the pain resulting in one’s failure in their relationship with the self. Feeling unable to experience adequate levels of self-esteem can reflect difficulty in loving and caring for yourself or accepting love from others. Feeling vulnerable and exposed can reflect difficulties in feeling able to protect yourself resulting from difficulties with setting effective boundaries, while losing yourself in the face of other’s beliefs can reflect difficulties with identifying and sharing who you know yourself to be. These and other symptoms can lead you to seeking to numb yourself from the pain of feeling overwhelmed. Reconnect with yourself.
